Shinya Kimura, Motorcycle God

The video above is one of the most well produced shorts I think I’ve ever seen. Shinya Kimura is a guy who builds motor cycles, plain and simple. But these are no ordinary bikes, they’re like works of art made of chrome and steel that go really, really fast. I love that he finds a peace and tranquility in his work, that the speed makes him feel like he’s one with the earth and the sky. I’m even a bit jealous, that he’s found such love and devotion in his work. I think I feel that way about designing but it seems almost spiritual to him. The video itself is masterfully edited: the sound, the cuts, the coloring… everything is so perfect.
